April 5-6, 2016 -- Cruz's sex scandal expands to cross-dressing capers at Princeton

Amid several published reports that identify Texas Senator and GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz as a one-time client of the late Deborah Jean Palfrey's sex escort service Pamela Martin & Associates are now multi-sourced reports that Cruz, while a student at Princeton University, donned women's clothes in order to sneak into off-campus sorority houses in the city of Princeton. Cruz allegedly engaged in "peeping Tom" activities on the female residents, including when they were walking to and from the showers.

Cruz's reputation as a pervert who spied on women in sorority houses earned him a reputation as a "creep" on campus and a definite "ick factor" surrounded him during his years at Princeton, according to knowledgeable sources contacted by WMR.

Cruz attended Princeton from 1988 to 1992 before attending Harvard Law School. Cruz clerked for U.S. Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 1996. From 1997 to 1998, Cruz served as a litigator with the Washington, DC law firm of
Cooper, Carvin & Rosenthal where he represented the National Rifle Association and worked on the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. Joining to George W. Bush campaign in 1999, Cruz spent his time shuttling between Austin, Texas and Washington, DC. It was during the Bush campaign that Cruz met Heidi Nelson, another campaign worker who he would later marry. 

While Nelson went to work at the Bush White House where she worked with former Goldman Sachs U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick, as well as American University's Robert Pastor on the North American Union, Cruz was relegated to a job at the Federal Trade Commission and a position under Attorney General John Ashcroft at the Justice Department. In 2003, Texas Attorney General and now Governor Greg Abbott appointed Cruz Texas Solicitor General. WMR has learned that a number of Bush White House officials did not want Cruz in the Executive Office of the President because they did not care for his personality.

WMR has learned that it was between 1997 and 2001 that Cruz engaged in the services of Palfrey's escorts. Palfrey's services were certainly known to the Bush-Cheney campaign at the time.When Palfrey released her phone lists to the media in 2007, WMR having been the first to receive the entire set of her entire phone billing records, Cruz, who was still relatively unknown, would have slipped through the vetting of the phone numbers and any associated names linked to those numbers. One customer identified was Senator David Vitter (R-LA). Others identified included U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) administrator Randall Tobias;
Democrat-turned-Republican political consultant Dick Morris; and Ronald Roughead, a retired Marine Colonel, SAIC Project Manager and brother of Admiral Gary Roughead, the Chief of Naval Operations. Multiple sources also confirmed to WMR that Dick Cheney was a client while he served as president of Halliburton in the 1990s.

On June 1, 2007, WMR reported:
"WMR has learned that a phone number located within a McLean, Virginia office that was used by then-Halliburton President and Chief Executive Officer Dick Cheney in the 1990s appears on the client list of Pamela Martin & Associates, the escort service operated by the so-called "Washington Madam," Deborah Jeane Palfrey.

The number was an extension in an office at 1616 Anderson Road that was later used as the Bush-Cheney Transition Team headquarters in November and December 2000. The number in question was an extension of the same number used by the Bush-Cheney Transition Team, 703-918-2900, which, according to Verizon, is a Western Electric 5ESS phone switch that is no longer a working number.

The office building is owned by the West Group, the real estate and property management company for whom Alice M. Starr, the wife of "Monicagate" Independent Prosecutor Kenneth Starr, has served as Vice President for Marketing and Public Relations.

McLean . . . was a major nexus for Pamela Martin escorts."

Cruz, as a member of the Bush-Cheney legal team in Florida that was involved in stifling the 2000 vote recount in that state, would have also been interfacing closely with the transition team in McLean.
